New guide to Photographing 2d works

I've created a rough guide (it's never complete and is always open to change) at this following link.
http://artbyandyonline.blogspot.co.uk/p/how-to-take-perfect-artwork-photograph.html

It's where I've collected together information, details, videos & images, with a large links list pointing to where I got the information from in detailing how to photograph 2D artworks. Hope it might be useful. Ax

Images of Sheffield's Hyde Park Flats Circa 60's/70's

Wow!! A view of Sheffield in the 60's/70's. That's Hyde Park flats on the horizon line. The largest part at the back was demolished in the early 90's. From the Facebook group "Pictures of Sheffield Old and New" shared by Jason Wragg - https://www.facebook.com/groups/picturesofsheffildoldandnew/permalink/10156332495139905/


When being part of the "Overlooked" show at Parkhill in 2015, I found this image showing another view of Hyde Park, I'm guessing from the 70's. It's a still from this following video by Pete Hill of http://Corvideos.com - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pwiz1A9gEWM
